i will tell you is that the ntsb conducts very thorough investigations. we will not reach a determination of probable cause in the first few days that we are on an accident scene. we want to make sure that we gatherer all of the perishable evidence and the facts. we have just been here for a few hours, not even a full day yet. we have preliminary information but we have a lot more work to do. we need to interview the crews and the first responders. we need to validate the raw data on the flight data recorder as well as on air traffic tapes. we'll be working to do that. >> steve gregory. can you tell us and characterize again at what point did something seem to go wrong? did it seem to go wrong from the data recorderer or from the voice recorder? where did the discrepancy enter first? >> from the information that we have on the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder where did things begin to go wrong and which one occurred first? what we need to do is corroborate the information on both the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder to overlay that wit

because the debris from the plane is still on the ground because they're waiting for the ntsb folks, who should be there right now. they had planned to arrive in san francisco from lax. and around 5:00 this afternoon. >> so they should be there. we talk about the safety of the boeing 777 and the safety relatively speaking at san francisco international airport. we should also point out that's carrier, asiana airlines, has an excellent safety record since the company was formed. >> uh-huh. it began flying in 1988. named airline of the year from 2009 to 2011. they have received a five-star airline ranking for four consecutive years so that speaks volumes. the airline serves nearly 15 million passengers annual low through 89 airports and 23 countries. >> the plane involved in the incident it a boeing 777-200, delivered new seven years ago. >> the plane seats 310 passengers in economy and business class. the 777 line is considered, as we have been talking about to be a very safe airline. only one major accident involving this teen of plane, and eric told us this, british airways jet crashed
